  MS 10 Outlook will not change default font/size from default setting
Posted by: Philip - 02-16-2019, 05:23 PM - Forum: Windows 10 - Replies (1)

As my title suggests I'm having problems getting my MS Outlook (Windows 10 OS version 1809) to change font/size settings for all options. ie.. New Mail, Reply, Forward ect

I've gone to the Outlook settings in the options and attempted to reset the fonts clicking on the appropriate OK buttons. When returning to the outlook 'new mail' to write a new mail the fonts have changed to the new settings, but as soon as I close Outlook and re-open it, I'm back to ground zero - all changes are lost. I would greatly appreciate help with this annoying problem.
As always Thanks for all of your professionalism.

  Intel rapid technology made my ssd not be recognised as one
Posted by: smirk24 - 02-12-2019, 11:13 PM - Forum: Windows 7 - No Replies

I installed Intel Rapid Technology on my system and when i went to disk de fragment to trim my ssd i noticed The ssd part missing which indicates to me that windows doesnt see my ssd as such but as a normal hard drive. so i uninstalled intel rapid technology and it still shows as the same before i uninstalled it

  Transfering data from a bad drive
Posted by: Secure Steve - 02-09-2019, 03:14 PM - Forum: Hardware Repairs and Troubleshooting - Replies (1)

So i have a 2TB hard drive with a bunch of bad sectors on it [Image: hnfkFtk.png] I bought a new 2TB HDD and want to transfer the data from the bad drive to the new one. Simply copying files results in a corrupt file or an I/O device error while copying. When opening the files from the corrupt drive they all open/play back perfectly but not if i copy them to the other drive . What is the best way to copy/clone the drive?

  PS/2 disabled on Win10
Posted by: cw2879 - 02-08-2019, 01:39 PM - Forum: Windows 10 - Replies (1)

Just a quick bit of info which you may or may not know. I found out this morning when I plugged in a PS/2 mouse that you need to change the registry and restart before Windows 10 will enable it.

The reg setting change is

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt and change the value of Start from 1 to 3

Also (for info only) the reason I am plugging in a PS/2 mouse is that two previous USB mice have had an issue where maybe 1 in 20 double clicks dont seem to be working. So just as a trial I put back my 8 year old PS/2 mouse and I can see already it is better.

Not sure if this is due to having approx 10 things on USB versus 1 dedicated to PS/2 but it is certainly working better with PS/2
